    Superb British 17th Lancers Other Ranks Cap, Circa 1901. White patent leather top with brass floral mounts on each corner, black patent leather body with yellow and blue cotton twill waist band.

Brass regimental skull and crossbones button on the plume boss and complete with white horsehair plume in a brass socket. The interior is the typical black oilskin sweatband and marked "W.

There is some insect tracking to the velvet sides but the helmet is in generally excellent condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
